There is something about this time of year that leaves me hungry for inspiration. Perhaps it’s the clean slate that comes with the turn of the calendar, but whatever it is, I soak up inspiration like a sponge. And I couldn’t be happier to do so when it’s as pretty as this shoot below from Little Flower Shop and Cojo Photo. Filled with the prettiest hues of mint, blush and gold this gallery is a great place to devour some seriously good inspiration.

From Cojo Photo
…We wanted to do a styled shoot, and gathered some of the best vendors in Winnipeg/Manitoba to collaborate with us. We went with a Mint, Gold, Blush and White theme for the shoot. The shoot was setup as to be a mock wedding and inspiration for other brides out there. We had the dress and the color scheme and got in touch with the other vendors to make the rest of it happen. A lot of great people came together to make this one happen.
The bride is Amanda Jonasson (She is also the other half of Cojo Photo, she is also responsible for coming up with the idea for this shoot.) Bridesmaid is her friend Kristen, Groom is Mike, and the Groomsman is Ryan. When getting the vendors together for this one we pretty much told them the theme we were working with and let them go with it and come up with the rest to show off their talents. The table by Haven Design was our first building block for the shoot, everything needed to go with it. Without that table it just wouldn’t have been the same.
From Little Flower Shop…The color theme and feel was the first thing that needed to be addressed. The inspiration colors are gold, mint, & ivory. The feel was rustic/vintage…this came from the beautiful table used in the shoot and definitely made the statement that was required to move forward with the accessories needed to bring the vintage to light! We had used classic mahogany chiavari chairs and lace runners adorned with gold beaded chargers set for six. To balance thid gorgeous table we hung a black wrought iron chandelier above it and then we smothered it in seeded eucalyptus. This alone was quite the eye catcher :) With a rectangle table we were able to put several sizes and styles of candle holders all through the center that filled in the body of the table.
We added gold mercury vases filled with ivory roses, blush roses and sahara roses from Peru. We simply put gold candelabras in on plain pillars for more interest and background. We then did a bride bouquet In a free flow style with a matching bridesmaid bouquet. The roses were sahara, ivory roses, blush roses, and seeded eucalyptus.
Wrapped in burlap and lace we did matching boutonniere for the groom and groomsmen in the same roses and seeded eucalyptus for the coordinating feel.

Sometimes I look at a wedding and I feel like my heart is going to come out of my chest. This is just such a wedding. Every sweet detail, every image from Moore Photography and every look between this (ridiculously good looking) Bride and Groom makes my heart sing. As this gorgeous Bride put it, “what’s more beautiful than two people in love?” I can’t think of much. See even more here.

From The Bride…I can now understand why people say your wedding is one of the best days of your life. What is more beautiful than 2 people in love? Kevin and I met in high school at the young ages of 15 and 17 years old. I have to say I feel so lucky to have been able to grow and experience life with him from such a young age. Seeing Kev at the end of the aisle and being surrounded by the most important people in our lives could not have made my heart more happy. The day was perfect from start to finish and we truly would not have changed anything.
Our wedding vision was vintage-glam. I have always had a love for all things vintage and find things like this intriguing. Kev and I started the hunt for the perfect antique items as soon as we got engaged. We picked out the typewriter, old books, watering can, dresser etc. to make our vision come to life while still adding in sparkly and glittery touches whenever we could! (There is never enough sparkle!). Our ceremony was held at an old cathedral style church with a stunning red carpet aisle and the reception took place at an ultra modern venue in Assiniboine Park with glass windows from the floor to the ceiling. My dress was purchased at Kleinfeld and designed by the amazing Pnina Tornai. Lucky me, it was her trunk show that weekend so I actually got fitted and measured by the designer herself! (such a cool experience!). Everything fell into place and Kev and I truly had the wedding of our dreams!
